I think they should rename Holly Wood Studios as “Kiddie Land”.

I think they should end up putting that frozen ride here.

Probably the same thing they did with Spectro and Lights of Winter, let them out to rust and trash them.

I know we’re all very anxious as to what’s going to be a part of this new “land”, but I welcome new developments at the Studios! A great park that needs some updates and love.

I enjoyed the back lot tour but they have taken so much away from it over the years, its just not fun any more.

What are Doing with Walt’s Gulfstream plane? Piece of Disney history.

Hopefully some of the props, like Walts plane, might be incorporated into a museum of Disney through the ages. Would be a shame not to see them. XX

I am not crying over that closure. Honestly, I thought it was cheesy.

Enormous waste of valuable space. I had heard rumors that cars land was going to replace back lot and stunt show. Likewise star wars land is going where indy was.and surrounding areas. These rides are dated and are not classics that deserve to be preserved. Hollywood needs a major overhaul and I for one am glad they are doing it.

Expand PixarLand with some thing from Incredibles and perhaps Ratatouille. Star Wars land will stay on other side of the park. Expand Muppets presence and replace Beauty and the BEAST with a Tangled show…that would give you 4 good lands in DHS and make it worth it.

Beauty and the Beast Show should be moved to the MK close to Be our Guest and Story Time with Belle in my opinion!

I’m so excited for something new at HS the Backlot Tour did get kinda meh after they removed some of the props. Not too excited for Star Wars expansion but Pixar exoansion will probably be a great addition to the park! I’ll miss The Beauty and the Beast show and would love to see it added to MK

Hate to see it go, it will be one of those rides (Attractions) my kids will remember when they get older. I have dibs on the tractor from Tim Allen’s Home Improvement Show.

Back in ’93 my friend and I were picked to be in the navy battle scene demonstration. The Backlot Tour will always be special to me. I’ve been on it many times since. Can’t say I’ll be sorry to see it go, though. Catastrophe Canyon was getting a bit stale.
